Slide, Magic Lantern
- View Full Item
A rectangular glass slide with five handpainted roundels framed in a black background. All of the scenes appear to be of Venice, but the slide is in poor condition.
Magic Lanterns were projectors which made a small, handpainted image project on a large screen. Shows were held in theatres; children had toy magic lanterns as well.
